It's kinda like pouring boiling water into a cold test tube, it's part of the same "family" as PYREX, heat resistant as hell, and that also translates into a stronger material.

I can make my own SS extension tube if they don't have one at time of purchase.

With the SS tube fitted it holds 3ml comfortably not counting the liquid used to prime the wick, didnít think to measure when I had the glass fitted.

LOL Caz ... yeah pretty much. I have some great Kayfun Lite [Plus] atomisers that work perfect.. and a Kayfun V5 that works perfect. From the sounds of it I have a pretty good squonk setup on the way too.

When the planets align in just the right way and the cobwebs in my wallet drift towards the northeast I suppose I will talk the wife into buying me one for Christmas.  :)+1

I see a clone in my future.  For some reason, I don't use the V5 that much.  I'd hate to drop a C-Note for an original and let it sit idle. w:)w w:)w w:)w

I may end up going down the same path Rik ... I paid a lot for the original Kayfun Lites I have.

Haven't been used since I got the V5 ... one is in my pocket on a second backup device but haven't had any mishaps this year where I needed to use it.

 Darth Old School works best.
 After your post saying you use your Kayfunís full metal jacket I thought I would give it a go.Not trusting myself to know when the tank is approaching empty when I canít  see the liquid I decided to use SS & temp control to be on the safe side.

Build 1 -  28g SS & cotton 1.8Ω.Result very good, no complaints and a happy bunny.

Build 2 -   34g SS & Bastos Silica using the same figure 8 that I normally use in a Kayfun but didnít take the difference in resistance of SS into consideration so it came out at near enough 1Ω.Result in TC Ė Perfection.

Was a little difficult getting the wick in the channels as they are small but it was worth it.Next time I intend to try a spaced 28g SS coil & thread a 3mm Bastos wick through it, should be easier to get in the channels but may not work like my old tried and tested  figure of 8 technique, dont expect it to improve anything but could be an easier build.

OK TC isnít old school but the build is

FMJ is the only way for me. I like my tanks built like a "TANK"

I use middle school variable wattage.... if it ain't broke don'f fix it.... it helps that I pretty much vape only one flavor.. it's easy to notice subtle changes like the tank starting to get empty.... with 5ml capacity though I hardly ever get to that point.  Just changed a coil the other day.. was about 1 1/2 months old. Did a couple coil scrapes along the way... LOL damn that thing looked nasty.. vaped like a champ though.

I'm still sitting with two V5's in their boxes 'cause I'm getting such great flavor from my Nautilus on the asMODus Minikin v2.  I *KNOW* the V5 gives great flavor on any mod I have, but I'm currently in that "ain't broke . . ."
 
BUT, the lure of another Kayfun masterpiece is an awfully strong lure.

 You wonít be disappointed.I am still experimenting but havenít had a failure or a leak. (yet)

 Latest build 3mm SS coil with one strand 3mm silica threaded through it, looking like it could be the best yet.
Rather than say I get a certain time out of a fill I would say averaging things out I am using a full tank to one battery as in tank empty battery flat with approximately a 1.8 Ω build at 10 to 15W this should give a fair idea of how long you should get out of the 2ml capacity. I would say thats a good average as I have used a lot of different builds to test it out.

 It could be me but I think I am getting a little more liquid in it when using the SS tank section, I used a syringe to fill it once with the SS tank & got 3ml in.
I will say if you want a great vape get one if you want clouds donít.Only my opinion but telling it as it is for me, I havenít been tempted to use anything else since the day it arrived.

I absolutely love Todd's reviews and this one for the Prime is only a breakdown.

They make decent clones Caz, thatís who we got the V5 clones from

On the few sites I have visited that stock the SXK products, they seem to get a lot of one star review (around 25% - 33%). So not all the knockoffs are of consistently good quality.

Even with that, if their quality is typically better than the no-name copies from FT, I might buy one if the reviews turn out to be generally favorable. There is no way I will pay close to $100 for an original - but would pay $15 for a decent copy.

I have been really busy lately. It seems that, if I am not working at the theatre, I am either home working with my plants or at my sister's house doing all sorts of tasks that she need done.  Most recent being the tearing out of her old and badly deteriorated fence on one side of her property so that it can be replaced.
